Butler Gallery wishes to make the gallery feel like a comfortable and welcoming space for our neighbours around John’s Street, Michael Street, Maudlin Street and John's Quay. In 2021 artist Pauline O'Connell will lead a project to introduce the gallery to our neighbourhood and our neighbours to the gallery. We want to explore together the cultural context and the rich history of John's Parish, Kilkenny and to see how the gallery can reflect this character, and our community, in our programming.
